Making a Difference
At West Park Academy, we believe that no matter how small you are, you can make a positive difference. This term all children have been litter picking as part of the Great British Spring Clean as we have noticed how much litter has been thrown in our local environment.
When Year 4 did the litter pick, Class 8 designed a program to record the number of pieces of litter collected using a micro:bit, some had to shake their device or press a certain button to record the data.
This followed on from work that they had previously done in computing sessions.
Below are some before, during and after photos. As I am sure you would agree, the children have done a fantastic job.
There are many more photos on our Gallery Page.
